New perspectives in music

WAS £35.00 £17.50

Product description

New Perspectives in Music provides a vivid and informative account of the more radical innovations which have taken place since 1945, including electronic composition, musique concrète, minimalism, improvisation and computer music. Roger Sutherland traces the origins of new music in the ideas of Schoenberg, Webern, Varèse and Russolo, and examines the various forms of musical expression which evolved during the post-war period, with analyses of the work of such seminal composers as Stockhausen, Cage, Xenakis, Ligeti and Reich; plus improvising ensembles like AMM, Musica Elettronica Viva and Gruppo Nuova Consonanaza.
He also draws parallels between musical developments and contemporaneous trends in the visual arts - action painting, Happenings, autodestruction, Pop Art and sound sculpture.
Both book and dust-jacket are in very good condition with just some light rubbing wear to the dust-jacket corners. Pages are clean and unmarked.
